Borough of Manhattan Community College

The campus, situated on 4.28 acres, became occupied in January 1983. The modern structure, spanning four blocks from Chambers Street to North Moore Street, is equivalent to the Empire State Building lying on its side (minus the tower).  College Now @ BMCC offers classes to qualified 11th and 12th graders on weekdays, evenings, and even Saturdays!

Courses on Our Campus

  • Saturday College: Study political science, psychology, sociology, critical thinking, or speech. Classes meet on BMCC’s Lower Manhattan campus from 9:00 AM to noon.
  • Anytime College: Take designated science, math, or foreign language courses at BMCC during the day or evening, according to your personal need. Call or email to schedule a qualifying math or language test. (Contact information follows later on this page.)


Courses at Your High School

If you attend a BMCC partner school, you can take a college-credit course in behavioral or social science right at your own school. All courses, which meet immediately after the regular school day, are taught by college professors.


Additional Benefits

Getting Started

  1. Search for your high school. If your high school is a partner school, make a note of its BMCC College Now liaison. The liaison is the person you’ll need to contact to see exactly what courses and activities are open to you, deadlines for enrollment, etc.
  2. If your high school is not officially partnered with BMCC College, you can contact Central Office CN staff to inquire about your options.
